First of all, I want to thank candychu for all her comments on my blog. Lately, I’ve only had time to quickly type down whatever I was thinking and then go back to work, but candychu frequently comes back even though I haven’t taken time to visit her blog. So many thanks!
Second of all, thanks for the complements about my eyes. 🙂
Anyways, my last post was about using Vaseline, the multipurpose miracle cream, to easily give your eyelashes a long lasting and beautiful curl.
candychu asked: do you “heat” up your eyelash curler by blow-drying it before using, or what?
I did heat before I discovered the miracle of Vaseline because it’s a tad easier. Even if I did that, the curl was difficult to make and difficult to maintain. I suppose my curlers don’t fit my eye too well because I seemed to have so many probs with curling my lashes before.
BUT with Vaseline, it’s actually a lot easier for me to curl my lashes. So now, I don’t heat my curler. It takes me a lot less time to curl my lashes with the Vaseline and it holds all day. Plus, the Vaseline give your lashes a nice glossy look. It’s pretty nice. Today, I just curl my lashes real fast to open up my eyes a bit and went out. No mascara. It’s been 12 hours, and my lashes are still pretty.
So even a quick application of Vaseline can perk up your “lazy eyelashes” candychu. Just remember to gradually move your curler when you curl. I don’t know if you know that already. Most people say that you should start at the roots and move out but I do the opposite – it seems to work for me. Just do what feels best for those lashes.
But yes, I LOVE VASELINE. Actually, I find it works the best for dry lips – much better than the more renowned “Burt’s Bees”. And it’s a GREAT makeup remover (not that I wear makeup that often. It’s such a hassle).
And haha, I’m totally guilty for not changing my mascara every three months, too – mainly because I use it so sparsely that I find it wasteful to keep replacing it. As a result, I use the same mascara for at least a year, which is TERRIBLE, but I could care less. XD
You know, I’ve always wanted to try Burt’s Bees because it’s so popular. It’s so pricey though, so I’ve never gotten the courage to buy it. I guess I won’t now that I know the power of Vaseline.
And yeah, that’s the same reason I don’t replace my mascara. I don’t wear makeup everyday. I only wear makeup when my eyes are tired, puffy, and in need of opening. It is more sanitary to replace your mascara though. I suppose, you might want to clean up your eyes before you apply mascara or any makeup. Maybe then it’ll be a little more cleaner. I mean, it’s not going to be wonderfully clean, but if you get dirt off your eyes, there won’t be much dirt going onto the mascara brush to build up later.
Well, I’m gonna sleep now. I have a super amount of work to do tomorrow. I’ll be back soon, I hope.
